Health Champions perform a really important role, advising patients/customers about health and wellbeing and signposting them to all kinds of support. (Read more about the role here.) People in Greater Manchester are lucky enough to have some fantastically passionate and committed Health Champions who do a fantastic job, day in and day out. This section of our website includes useful links and resources to help Health Champions in your work.
